Calamari Salad

Calamari SaladWe came across a delicious summer recipe on the back of a package of cooked, sliced calamari.

We made just a few modifications and we were able to substitute the necessary ingredients to make it pure Paleo.

Calamari Salad is the perfect fresh dish to share on a warm evening with friends!
